Synopsis: Paragon of youthful beauty, romantic symbol of a lost England, and precociously gifted poet, Rupert Chawner Brooke died in a hospital ship off the Aegean island of Skyros in April 1915, aged just 27. All England mourned his passing. But behind the glow of myth lies a darker reality. At the height of his promise a disappointment in love triggered a mental and physical collapse that brought his inner complexities to the surface. Letters reveal a man who was sexually ambivalent, misogynistic, anti-Semitic - and sometimes alarmingly unstable.

From the Publisher: As well-tended legend has it, Rupert brooke was the quintessential romantic Englishman: handsome, charming, a soldier-poet who died young on his way to the battlefields of World War I. Now, in this immensely readable volume, the myth of thc golden boy of English letters is skillfully dispelled. Deconstructing the carefully crafted image promoted by his friends, this well-documented biography reveals a charismatic but deeply flawed human being--anti-Semitic, rampantly misogynistic, tormented by sexual ambivalence, jealousy, and paranoia. In "Rupert Brooke: Life, Death and Myth," Nigel Jones gives us a clear-eyed, admirably thorough account of one of England's most cherished cultural icons.
